Italian sausage in a creamy tomato sauce nestled into squash halves makes for a cozy meal on a cold evening. This recipe works with either butternut or delicata squash. Delicata squash is delicious, but it's hard to locate outside the fall months.


  • 2 butternut squash (or delicata squash, medium)
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. mild Italian sausage (removed from casings)
  • 1/2 onion (medium, finely diced)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz. per can)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Did you make this?

    too sweet for my taste
    It was good for what it was…but I think next time I’ll try a recipe that carved out and incorporates more of the butternut squash into the mix rather than just filling in the small cavity.

    This was my first time making anything like this and it was very good! I will definitely keep it in mind to make again. I had lamb smoked sausage that I cut into small pieces and I used gruyere instead of Parmesan just because I needed to use it up.

    Such an incredible dish!! I only had deer sausage but it was absolutely incredible. highly highly recommend 👌

    This was great! However I made it as a vegetarian dish and omitted the sausage. I used half and half rather than cream. I also roasted the squash in my air fryer on roast at 375 for 25 minutes.
    looks great 👍.. Thanks a lot

    I cut too much off the end of the squash so didn’t have a hole to fill, but it still tasted amazing!

    I had to improvise with a couple ingredients considering we are in midst of the world pandemic. It was just as amazing had I followed the recipe as set out

    that's not delicata, that's butternut.
